We may not have much of a winter in San Diego but two months of gray skies make summer’s arrival special. As May Gray descends on San Diego, now is a good time to figure out what’s on the docket after June Gloom leaves and summer actually does arrive. For many foodies, that means figuring out where to eat and then planning around that. Our region offers no shortage of good options worth actually going to and skipping the convenience of PostMates.
When summer gets here, one of the first things on the docket is getting to the beach. But it’s nice, every once in a while, to do it differently. Drive south across the border to the land on the other side of that wall Trump wants to build and head to Playas de Tijuana. On the way to the beach, hit up El Jardín Parque Gastronomica (Paseo Ensenada #1443 Sec. Jardínes Playas de Tijuana) and fuel up on a Volcano: meat, vegetables and even cheese and sauces that are both cooked and served in a molcajete. Then, head a few blocks northwest to the beach and walk all the way to that wall. It’s guaranteed to provide a different, sobering perspective.
